Hindustan Times (Chandigarh) - Live - - IN & AROUND -

DERA BASSI: Lo­cal coun­cil­lors re­mained up in arms against the mu­nic­i­pal of­fi­cers and con­trac­tors due to their al­leged neg­li­gent at­ti­tude over de­vel­op­ment works. Where con­trac­tors com­plain of lack of man­power and other re­sources to speed up the work in sched­uled time, coun­cil­lors al­lege them of high­hand­ed­ness in work­ing in the pres­ence of Mohali plan­ning board chair­man Narinder Sharma.

The coun­cil­lors also al­leged that ten­ders could not be al­lot­ted to de­vel­op­ment works worth Rs 11 crore even three months af­ter their ap­proval. Irate over the de­lay caused, Narinder Sharma snubbed the mu­nic­i­pal of­fi­cers be­sides sum­mon­ing all 22 con­trac­tors for re­ply on Thurs­day.

These ten­ders were sup­posed to be al­lot­ted af­ter polls, but MC of­fi­cers failed to al­lot them. Even, the coun­cil­lors expressed re­sent­ment over the way con­trac­tors are run­ning these projects.
